Created in spring 2003, the Center for Excellence in the Arts and Humanities supports public engagement and distinction in humanistic scholarship and artistic creation at Iowa State University. The Center promotes literacy in the intellectual, historical, and artistic foundations of culture, advocating the arts and humanities as essential components of the university's mission to advance both research and education. The Center offers a wide range of programs and events that bring people together for fellowship and intellectual exchange. In addition, it encourages new modes of scholarly collaboration with the public and between the arts, humanities, and sciences.
